Lobbying world starting to wake up to the NDP


Robin MacLachlan is the face of a new breed in Ottawa: NDP corporate lobbyist. The former NDP staffer works the phones on behalf of 11 clients – including large companies such as Cisco Systems, Nalcor Energy and Nestlé Canada Inc. – and increasingly pops up on political talk shows as an NDP supporter. He prefers to say he’s in the “government relations” business. “The word lobbyist has taken on a bit of a pejorative character to it, so for that I may get the odd joke from my social democratic friends, but it’s all in good humour,” ...


NDP wants new civilian oversight for military


New Democratic Party MPs called Thursday for stronger civilian oversight of the Canadian military, saying the Afghan-detainees affair has shown the need for greater transparency and accountability by the Canadian Forces. They proposed the creation of a civilian office of inspector general, similar to positions in the United States and Australia. Citing Britain and Australia, they said the existing judge advocate general — the top legal person in the military — should be a civilian, not a member of the armed forces. The proposals were made at a news conference held by Ottawa MP ...

POLITICAL LOWLIGHTS OF 2014 – #2: The Conservatives’ Shameful Treatment of our Veterans
In 2014, we saw a Conservative government plagued by scandals, out of touch with challenges facing Canadians and preoccupied with photo-ops and their own partisan interests. Meanwhile, Justin Trudeau’s Liberals fail to hold Conservatives to account and, after two years, we still have no idea where they stand on key issues. A year’s worth of scandals and ineptitude condensed into our annual list of the top political lowlights of the year... LOWLIGHT #2: The Conservatives’ shameful treatment of our veterans When Julian Fantino skipped a meeting with veterans rather than hear their concerns, Canadians thought it couldn’t get worse, but the Conservatives’ poor treatment of veterans sunk to new lows in 2014: While Canadian military personnel and veterans face an unprecedented mental health crisis, Fantino closed 9 regional offices and fired hundreds of frontline workers, forcing veterans to drive hours to receive service or call a 1-800 number; Nearly a quarter of total staff hav
POLITICAL LOWLIGHTS OF 2014 – #4: Stephen Harper’s Conservatives Seem Incapable of Working with the Provinces

Meanwhile, Justin Trudeau’s Liberals fail to hold Conservatives to account and, after two years, we still have no idea where they stand on key issues. A year’s worth of scandals and ineptitude condensed into our annual list of the top political lowlights of the year... LOWLIGHT #4: Stephen Harper’s Conservatives Seem Incapable of Working with the Provinces Stephen Harper’s Conservatives seem totally unable to work with the provinces. Not only have they made several decisions that will leave serious gaps in the provinces’ finances, they’ve taken particular joy in causing unnecessary conflict by abdicating their constitutional responsibilities to consult the people impacted by their decisions.   The growing list of controversial issues includes: Ending home delivery of mail and closing several
POLITICAL LOWLIGHTS OF 2014 – #1: Canadians getting Ripped Off by the Conservatives
In 2014, we saw a Conservative government plagued by scandals, out of touch with challenges facing Canadians and preoccupied with photo-ops and their own partisan interests. Meanwhile, Justin Trudeau’s Liberals fail to hold Conservatives to account and, after two years, we still have no idea where they stand on key issues. A year’s worth of scandals and ineptitude condensed into our annual list of the top political lowlights of the year... LOWLIGHT #1: Canadians getting Ripped Off by the Conservatives Since coming to power, the Conservatives have continued to dismantle programs and services that Canadians rely on. Here are a few examples: Gradually eliminating home mail delivery, while significantly increasing postal rates; Raising the retirement age from 65 to 67, making it harder for seniors to make ends meet; Cutting 50% of all local Radio-Canada/CBC news bulletins in several regions; Leaving seats vacant on the Social Security Tribunal, which has a backlog of 15,000 cases of u

A year’s worth of scandals and ineptitude condensed into our annual list of the top political lowlights of the year... LOWLIGHT #3: Conservatives Climate Change #Fail Way back in 2007, Prime Minister Harper was pretty clear about his intentions on climate change: “Mr. Speaker, this government has said it will bring in a national system of regulations for the control of greenhouse gas emissions.” And for seven years, regulations on oil and gas emissions were always just around the corner. Flash forward to this year, and suddenly Conservatives are not only distancing themselves from this policy, they are disavowing it. “Under the current circumstances of t
